Then I met with Ray on March 19. He had two students with him which I always find annoying but feel too bad to say no to. We chatted about ways to help my gbs test be negative so I wouldn’t have to get an IV this time around. But oh, new policy, I have to get a heplock no matter what to go down to the 4th floor. I know it’s not the end of the world, but it would be so nice to labor without a needle sticking in my hand/arm.
Baby Name: Well, we are almost 100% sure of our name but since we haven’t announced it publicly yet, might as well just wait. If you ask me in person, I have no problem sharing it, but I guess it will be fun to be able to share it with more people on the day he arrives.
Stuff I done for the man: Hahahahaha. I mean a whole lot of nothing. Ok well I have lots of ideas but the our basement reno has taken all priority right now. Also baby’s room had been housing the stuff from the basement, so I could barely walk into the room, let alone start decorating. But the room got cleaned out this weekend and the painting has begun! Here’s a little preview of the color scheme in his room. The walls will be the aqua(ish) color with accents of grays and yellows.
I have quite the growing list of things like a blanket, his coming home outfit, art for above the crib, mobile, nursing cover, updated burp cloths, etc that need to get finished in the next 10 weeks. I keep telling myself it doesn’t have to be done before he gets here (as he’ll be in our room for the the first month) but let’s be honest – I’d love to have it completed beforehand.
In other news: Jenna has decided not to fly out for little man’s birth. While I’m super sad to not have her beautiful eye taking pictures, it does relieve a little pressure of only have a 3 day window in which to go into labor. So I’ve booked Holly Birch Photography to take pictures for me. She does amazing work and is in town so she can come whenever the big event happens. It’s been so great to not have to worry about snapping pictures and having gorgeous shots of the biggest events in my life!
How I’m feeling: Like a whale. Ok, it could be worse. Just feeling the normal end-of-pregnancy things where you have 5 pillows in your bed and still can’t sleep and are peeing every 20 minutes. But I’m also getting really excited that we get to meet him soon!
